    Hey there,

    so right now I am trying to get arm9loaderhax to work but well.. it doesnt.

    I was following Plailects guide carefully and now I am at the point, where I went to 2xrsa.3ds.guide and then pressed select in order to install arm9hax..
    Now whenever I hold select (or start for Hourglass9) my New3DS just goes to sysnand while blinking in different colors. I checked settings and I am on 2.1.0...
    If you need more information, tell me.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have a CFW actually setup?

    My folders should all be ready for the newest release of Luma3DS. If I am right, while holding select at boot, my New3DS should automatically go to the Luma settings.

    You're not finished with the guide yet. Keep following it, you haven't set Luma up yet.

    You're correct. If you're AT Section III then Luma should be installed as well as A9LH.

    What's your firmware version say under System Settings?

    Just saw you said 2.1 still. Hmmm.

    I'm going to say it didn't install Luma and A9LH. Load the link up again and install again.

    I already tried that a few times.. It doesnt give me an error or anything.
    Can I somehow enter the homebrew launcher and then start SafeA9HInstaller from there? Or is this useless?

    I'm not sure if that would work.

    Could you possibly take a screenshot of your SD card root please?

    I will do that tomorrow as I've just shut down my PC (late night here and I am angry now :D).
    But thanks for your help :)

    OK. Just whatever you do, don't update, format or put to sleep your N3DS on 2.1. Power down before closing the lid.

    Here is the screenshot

    I assume that something is wrong with my OTP file.
    I didnt do a sysnand backup like described in the tutorial, as I already had a backup (I was using Emunand before).
    May this be the problem?
    To be honest, I have no idea about the OTP.

    Sounds like you are doing something completely wrong if you can't get to the luma config when holding select.Did you get the otp extracted anyway? That's weard since if a9lh didn't install you wouldn't of got that file.

    I cant get to the "install a9hl screen anymore. 2xrsa and bit.do/arm9lh dont work for me anymore..
    I do have an "otp.bin" in the a9hl folder on my sdcard.
    I think a9hl is somehow installed, as the installer didnt give me any errors.. But like I said, I cant hold select or start at boot.. It just goes into sysnand.

    Do you start pressing start before pressing power?

    Yes. Tried "select" and "start" as well. None of them works.
